Hi ladies..I don't really have anyone to ask this question to and I'm not really good at making decisions right now so I hope you can help me.
Everyone is just telling me "whatever you decide to do" but well, that doesn't help :)
I just found out that my uncle passed away this morning. My family lives a good 6 hour drive away in a rural area so the only way I can really get there is to drive. My husband does not have any time he can take off of work so he likely will not be able to go to the funeral with me if I can go. I have a 2 year old son who I may be able to secure a sitter for 2 days while DH is at work and a baby who will be 2 weeks old on Wednesday, and on top of this I'm still recovering from the csection both physically and mentally.
My question is- I'm not going anywhere without the baby. Would you take a young baby on a trip like this? It's a 6 hour drive which with feeding every two hours-- probably comes to 8ish hours. Would you bring the two year old without help? (I'm really sore and can't chase after him very well). It breaks my heart to not be there for my dad but I don't know if I can do it. What would you do?
